MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Server Response to Signals

5.1.11 Server Response to Signals

On Unix, signals can be sent to processes. mysqld responds to signals sent to it as follows:

  • SIGTERM causes the server to shut down.

  • SIGHUP causes the server to reload the grant tables and to flush tables, logs, the thread cache, and the host cache. These actions are like various forms of the FLUSH statement. The server also writes a status report to the error log that has this format:
